  • My Very First Blog Post!

  • The Sweet Sweet Review of Tobe Hooper's "Invaders From Mars" (please dear God let this not be a false awakening)

    If any of you remember the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons, then you'll understand why when I was a kid I swore that that was Krang. Of course that was all I remember from this movie, and I had only seen bits and pieces as a kid, so this... More
  • If You Read One Thing About GI This Year Make It This

    44 6
    Let’s take a moment to stop with all the games and talk for just a second about something very dear to myself and probably several others. As of late I have been visiting the site very frequently again. While you may not see me post with an exception... More

  • Art..?DaDa!

    3
    What is art? Art is Dada. What is Dada? Dada is nothing. Dada is everything. In light of the article posted about Ebert's lack of understanding to what is art, I felt like writing a bit. What do you think is art? Is what I'm writing art? yes.... More
  • Critiquing the Unknown

    12
    Roger Ebert’s Candid Admission got me thinking... The root of the problem is that this professional critic didn't play by his own rules when he critiqued a subject that was outside his area of expertise - movies. Why was he "wrong"... More

    Just recently, I downloaded the new Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box puzzles, and I asked my dad if he would like to do them with me. He said yea, sure, so we did a few puzzles together. Later that night, I found him sneaking around trying to find... More
